Tranquil Stucco Porch This porch wall contains the fireplace, cabinets, and a wood storage cubby. This gives the porch a main focal point, and it screens it from neighbors and the harsh sun. Fresh-cut firewood is stacked high to add texture and contrast to the white stucco wall. There’s no worry about running out of wood before the end of the night.
Live-In Back Porch This 35-foot-long by 9-foot-deep back porch respects Southern porches of the past by using traditional shading devices such as a trellis at one end. Comfortable rattan chairs, cushioned in red, yellow, and green, add cheer to this outdoor living room. Ceiling fans help cool the space during sultry summer days, while three copper-finish lanterns contribute to the ambience.
